Another RoadSide Attraction / Bio

Husband/wife duo, Jordan Rivers & Lucy de los Rios started Another RoadSide Attraction in Jan. 2010. They perform as an intimate duo, a higher energy trio or an all out ensemble of 4 or more, featuring different lead players from time to time. The shows are unique and feature a menagerie of instrumentation. Fun for all ages and diverse crowds!

"They (Another RoadSide Attraction) have created a family and have built their lives around that which they love to do. When I go over to one of their houses they always seem to be practicing, writing, making costumes, gear, instruments or manufacturing their own merchandise. A lot of people talk about passion and devotion to craft, but I have never seen this level of commitment. This is a band of true believers. I have seen them at work. They know how to get things done and they know how to have fun doing it....You have to love their aesthetic. I like to call it Steinbeck/Through the Looking Glass. These guys don’t put on costumes to perform. They go to bed in them, they wake up in them, they go to Grandma’s house in their costumes."
- Geoff Conley, Lucid Press

"ANOTHER ROADSIDE ATTRACTION('s) signature sound is equal parts gypsy jazz, vaudeville, circus funhouse, and riverboat steam, rattled around in a boxcar for a couple thousand miles, served with sangria and sausages."
- Charles Alan Reynolds III, of SatelliteKill Orchestra
